I remember back in the day, a few versions ago (8 I think?) I played around a bit with custom dialogs, and if my memory serves, Installshield would 'polish' your dialogs to a certain extent for you when it displayed them. It would set the title, make the dialog the same size as the other dialogs, and place the buttons in the proper places (as long as you gave them the same IDs as the standard back/next/cancel buttons). Even when you choose a skin it would apply the skin to the standard parts of the dialog. Does it still do this? I can't seem to get it to work....it seems to me that if I want my dialog to look the same as the rest, I have to meticulously clone one of the existing dialogs, and if I want to put a skin on it, I have to skin my custom dialog manually. It seems odd to me that they would have this functionality and then drop it, so I'm guessing I'm just doing something wrong....
